Improve customer experience while adding incremental revenues and donations per customer and increasing profits per event attendee

Patron can bring innovation to the process to drive new attendance to events with no incremental costs

For those going to a play or a concert or a recital, it makes complete and total sense to “make it a date night” or “make it a weekend”, where even locals may need or want a hotel room.

But imagine the performers sending their family and friends a “come hear me sing” or “come and see me perform” or  “come and watch me dance”.  All of the sudden you’ve opened up a whole new, viral way to promote the event.  Each performer/athlete can have their own widget, with a photo of them, and post it on social media.  We can link the widget directly to your ticketing engine, making it easy to not only plan your trip to the event, but also to buy tickets.  And we can even provide a booking tool for the roadies to find a hotel nearby the venue.

Oh, and did we mention that we give back to your charity of choice for every event in every venue?  And you can choose a different local charity for each one, to better serve the communities.

What is the Smart Trip Tool and why would Ticketmaster integrate it into its branded sites?

We believe that the moment when someone decides to attend an event is the optimal time for them to plan how they will get there.

If an event ends late at night and/or alcohol is served at the venue, even a local resident may choose to get a hotel room.  At Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, they calculate that 17% of event goers (whether sports or concerts) need or want a hotel room.  This number goes way up for wildly popular performances that sell out, like Hamilton, as people will travel anywhere just to get a chance to see it.  The same thing is true on annual events such as the Super Bowl or the Final Four or the Masters.

Integration into an events system at the point where the purchase is complete captures the highest possible intent for travel.  The confirmation is the next most likely place.

The TripProximity smart trip tool can be integrated at multiple places you your sites.  By integrating into the event page, prior to committing to buy the ticket the individual can search in a separate window to see if rooms are available.  Or if they are local and don’t need a room, they can simply use the map and driving directions.

Marketing messages used in email or social media campaigns for an event, such as Make it a Weekend or Make it a Date Night, can increase the likelihood of a hotel stay, even for locals.

Key Features

The Smart Trip Tool includes the following features.

I'm Staying

Hotel Booking Nearby the Venue or Event

This element of the Smart Trip tool gives the event attendee the ability to book a hotel in a single click, since the widget is pre-populated with the event venue info and the event date.  Hotel bookings are guaranteed to be the lowest published rate online. Solutionz provides a 110% best rate promise and will refund 110% of the difference for someone who finds a hotel room available cheaper on another site.

We can set the hotel brand family to Hilton, to honor your existing relationship with Hilton.

Address Lookup

If the user wishes to travel to a different destination, they can type in their destination using the pencil.

I'm Driving

Driving Directions and Optional Car Rental

In the US, 89% of all travel is by car.  Driving directions are useful to all event attendees that are not personally familiar with the event venue.  This tab also provides smart car rental.

Smarter Driving Directions

TripProximity now handles multi-day trip planning by allowing the user to define the number of hours per day that they would like to drive.  This then calculates the actual driving time, versus the driving straight through method that Google, Mapquest and others use.

Smarter Car Rental

TripProximity now allows the user to specify whether they want to drive or fly to their destination, which changes where you would pick up your car rental.

Since you have a sponsorship deal with Hertz, we can preset the car rental company.   The user may override the default at transaction time and see all car rentals, or we could link directly to the car company’s system.

I'm Flying

Optionally offer Air Tickets

TripProximity provides the ability to buy airline tickets worldwide.  Should Ticketmaster do a sponsorship with a global airline, we can set that airline as the preferred.

Social Sharing

Once the Smart Trip Tool is displayed, the user can choose to share the widget with friends/family.  The widget can be linked back to the ticket purchase page.

This feature can be disabled.

 

Royalties

We earn revenues from travel bookings made on our client systems.  The highest revenues come from hotels, then car rental.  Air tickets produce a nominal fee.  We are paid post-checkout, generally within 30 days for completed bookings.

In 4Q18 we are adding another booking source to augment our longstanding relationship with Priceline Partner Network and Booking.com.  That will add not only 200 new inventory sources for lodging (including non-standard apartments, home rentals), cruise and attractions, but also the ability to serve very deeply discounted products to closed user groups behind a login.

Solutionz will share 10% of our revenues with Ticketmaster for any activities on any of your online brands and even through rooms booked when someone calls your ticketing call center.  Should the monthly bookings exceed 1000, we will move you to our highest earning threshold of 20%.

Giving Back

We will donate a minimum of 10% of our revenues to your charity of choice annually, giving the funds in your name.

If you want to operate the smart trip planning program out of the House of Blues Foundation as TravelingToGive, we will donate 25% to the Foundation.

Traveler Support

We guarantee that we will have the lowest published rates on hotel rooms.  We stand behind that promise with a 110% best rate guarantee, and we will refund 110% of the difference if someone finds the same hotel, same room type for the same dates/duration after booking on your site(s).

We provide 24/7/365 support in 40+ languages for the customer and an Account Director will be assigned to you for escalation of any issues with the smart trip tool or any of your campaigns.

Referrals

We recognize that you have very strong partnerships in place with the organizations that you serve and the various organizations that you partner with.  We respect your relationships and will work with you to ensure that we honor those relationships.

For ticketing providers, we can add the travel offer as a “do you want fries with that” at the end of the buying path.  For 501c3s we have various fund raising tools, including our “anywhere” tool that can be used to raise donations while they sleep.

We have a formal referral program and the underlying technology to track referrals from Ticketmaster and other organizations within Live Nation.   If you make referrals to Solutionz, we want to thank you in a material way.

We have started you at Level 2, which immediately allows you to earn royalties and donations.   Any referrals that you make while you are at Level 2 will be counted toward reaching Level 3.

Once you achieve Level 3 with us (250 booking threshhold), any referrals that you have done will accrue to your account and we will pay you as a channel partner on those deals at a fixed 10% of their first year’s revenues.

Terms and Conditions

We believe that we need to earn your business every day and we are committed to your satisfaction.

You will have an Account Director that will navigate our organization to respond promptly to any issues or concerns.

Solutionz does not require a long term contractual commitment.   We do ask our enterprise clients for one year, with mutual agreement on renewal.
